Once being owned by the owners of Poland Spring Water Company, this resort has a very diverse background that brought it to where it is today. It was originally named Samoset in 1902 after the people who first met the Pilgrims on this land many years ago. It changed ownership numerous times and even burned down in 1972. Samoset was returned to its glory just two years later and has grown into the award-winning resort it is now.

Best weekend ever

Having my wedding at the Samoset was a dream. I wanted everyone to be able to stay on site, and have all weekend activities on site as well. From the rehearsal dinner outside under the tent, to the welcome party at the clubhouse to the ceremony by the breakwater and reception back under the tent.... the entire weekend was such a dream. I even had a torrential HAIL storm mid ceremony, no covering, and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Linde was ON POINT, she is blunt and extremely detail oriented and that is exactly what you need in a wedding planner. The actual hotel itself is top notch— resort style pool, stunning golf course, renovated rooms... could not recommend this place more. Food was amazing as well!! Lobster all weekend. You’ll have the wedding of your dreams! Worth every penny.
